I know that you feel overwhelmed when it comes to additive free!

I know it feels daunting when you are first starting out.  It really doesn’t need to be.

All you need to do is take a step, one thing at a time.  I am here to make it easier for you!

Through Additive Free Kids, we will be your advocate for you and your family.

Our “Switch this to this” posts are aimed at helping you take those first few steps on the additive free journey.

Making it easy for you and your kids!

My mission is to provide you with the knowledge to cast your vote at the supermarket each week, to vote for the world you want to see.

It is really important when you are starting on the additive free journey that your kids don’t feel like they are missing out.

You are just switching one product for a better alternative.

Whether it be tomato sauce, sausages or additive free potato chips that we are looking at today.

Whilst I wouldn’t recommend eating potato chips all the time, the reality is that often when you are out and about, catching up with friends, at a BBQ, people like to bring along potato chips.

This will help you know which ones are better options!

The key to success is to be able to take one step at a time and ensuring your kids don’t feel deprived.

Let’s have a look Light and Tangy Potato Chips


Potatoes, Vegetable Oil, Salt, Milk Solids, Sugar, Vegetable Powders (Onion, Tomato), Food Acids (330,331,262), Flavour (Natural), Flavour Enhancer (621), Herbs & Spices, Starch, Cheese (From Milk), Vegetable Extract (Contains Soy).

What are some of the ingredients to look out for?

Vegetable oil – often vegetable oil can contain hidden antioxidants, these are often hidden thanks to the labelling loopholes in our legislation.

If the vegetable oil represents less than 5% of an ingredient, the manufacturer does not need to declare that antioxidants have been included.

These antioxidants are often petroleum derived and are known to cause asthma symptoms, tummy pains, eczema, hives, rashes and in some instances behavioural problems.


Food acid (330) – Citric acid – often contains MSG or creates MSG during processing ^

Flavour (natural) – often contains MSG or creates MSG during processing ^

Flavour enhancer (621) – MSG – can often cause symptoms such as asthma, behavioural problems, depression, headaches, migraines, learning difficulties *

Vegetable extract (contains soy) – often contains MSG or creates MSG during processing ^
